    Are the hoses available in black? If they are, that's the way I'd go, particularly if the valve covers are the same red as the TB. And yeah, you're going to be asked to pop the hood on it quite often I believe. Two different reds right there in the front will make it look like it was made by Subaru!

    I agree. But that is now about 11th or 12th on the list...... I would ultimately like to get tb redone.

    Then get three or four of them, have them done in different colors and just bolt on the one you feel like having each time you go for a drive. But then you may have some idiot saying, "No, the car that beat me had a green TB and this one has a blue one. It's gotta be a different car". I guess there are drawbacks no matter what way you go.

    Kane just pull it off and send it to me and I will do it a funky color then it will be all on its own no need to match nothing and trust me I have some funky colors.

    well worked on it today, but only redid some things, so no Forward progress. The alternator bracket i purchased wouldnt allow me to use the tensioner in the stock location. So I purchased a Really Nice one from Chris at CBR Performance. Got it on and extended alt wire. just gotta figure out what belt i need. Managed to cut my stock fans in half, only to find out the the right side fan was too thick and inter with the filter on the turbo..... so ruined a nice set of stock fan and still need to spend more money on getting another fan. Did manage to fab up a bracket for my vacuum distribution block, that's goin under the cowl. So Yay!!!

    You should just get a wrx. It already has a turbo and you can play in the dirt. OR get a easier turbo setup..REAR MOUNT?

    Great progress this wkend, while you all were having fun!! Motor is done. Got last pipe welded up Friday, so turbo and kit is now Complete and installed, well minus a couple vacuum hoses, since no one in town has a simple 90* fitting. So now gauges are all that's left. Oh and I'm gonna need to swap my gears out. Finally some progress!!!!

    Word to ya motha

    Hey wait a minute. Why do you need to swap gears if it's just going to sit on jack stands?

    Same reason you need a gym. To hold the concrete down, I reckon.

    Well Roy, I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who leaves themselves wide open for a pot shot from Kane.
